TIL: Drive the Bid Podcast

What did you learn today?


This week on the Drive the Bid podcast from, Derek Shiekhi and I had a tête-à-tête of sorts to show each other something from our own respective automotive worlds. Inspired by the “Today I Learned” (TIL) meme that has permeated the Internet and has inspired its own community, Derek schooled me on proper Bugatti Veyron maintenance, and I showed Derek why I think the 1964 Pontiac GTO was the first muscle car.

So, a bit of objective history, a bit of subjective history. What’s your take on the subjective?

Derek and I also chatted about the news, from Steve Magnante’s health (no update, so stable), an uptick of manual transmission sales, and a Mercedes-Benz PHEV that managed 58 miles for Car and Driver before the gas engine kicked in. For our AutoHunter picks, Derek chose a 1997 Ferrari F355 Spider, while I chose a 1966 Oldsmobile 4-4-2 just so I could demonstrate its authenticity could be determined by the “5V” on the data plate.

Of course, AutoHunter Cinema has plenty of other videos and podcasts created by the experts behind, the world’s largest online collector car marketplace. AutoHunter brings forth a dedicated live customer support team, quicker auction listings and exclusive benefits for both buyers and sellers.

Lead Writer Diego Rosenberg is a native of Wilmington, Delaware and Princeton, New Jersey, giving him plenty of exposure to the charms of Carlisle and Englishtown. Though his first love is Citroen, he fell for muscle cars after being seduced by 1950s finned flyers—in fact, he’s written two books on American muscle. But please don’t think there is a strong American bias because foreign weirdness is never far from his heart. With a penchant for underground music from the 1960-70s, Diego and his family reside in metropolitan Phoenix.
